Paris Saint-Germain are leading the chase to sign Palmeiras forward Endrick and are preparing another bid for the teenage star, sources have told ESPN, after seeing an opening bid of €45 million rejected.

PSG forward Neymar, who is with Brazil at the World Cup in Qatar, has been speaking with his compatriot, sources have said, to convince the teenager to move to the French capital.

Meanwhile, sources have told ESPN that PSG are not interested in signing free agent Cristiano Ronaldo, who mutually terminated his contract at Manchester United last week. The club rejected the chance to sign Ronaldo last summer and will issue the same response in January, sources have said, with their focus instead on Endrick.

Endrick could only go to Europe in 2024 when he turns 18. His contract with the Brazilian champions runs until 2025.
